Students Staff

Single gender flats

We want to make your stay with us as comfortable as possible, especially as for most of you it will be the first time you have lived away from home and the people you know. So to help make this a little easier, when you apply for your accommodation you will have the option of selecting a single gender flat. This means that you will share the flat with only students of the same gender. If you opt to live in a single gender flat, you should be aware of the following:

  • You will not be permitted to have visitors of a different gender to your flat
  • You will not be permitted to have overnight guests of a different gender staying in your flat
  • You will not be able to exchange your room, or transfer your tenancy to a student of a different gender
  • Our housekeeping staff (who may be of any gender) will access your flat regularly to clean the communal areas. There will also be times when our staff or staff from other University departments will need to access your bedroom. At least 24 hours notice will normally be given. Please read our Terms and Conditions of Residence for further information

Important: We have a very limited number of single gender flats available, so althought we will of course do our very best to accommodate your request, we would not be able to guarantee an offer of this type of accommodation.
